    Weather From Alaska Dispatch News: Winter storm hits Western Alaska coast on its way to Fairbanks, Anchorage
    Much of Alaska was under weather warnings or advisories as a winter storm moved east across the state on Dec. 29, 2016.

    Parts of Nome and Kotzebue lost power Thursday as a winter storm rolled over Alaska's western coast, while communities across the state braced themselves for possible heavy snow and blizzard conditions as the storm moved east.

    National Weather Service meteorologist Steven Vasko said Kotzebue was experiencing "basically white-out conditions," with wind gusts of 55 to 65 mph. A blizzard warning remains in effect for the Baldwin Peninsula and Selawik Valley — including Kotzebue, Selawik and Noorvik — until 3 a.m. Friday.

    Around noon Thursday, a Kotzebue Electric Association employee said the utility was working on restoring power.

    "We just got one section of town back on, and now we're going to work on another part," said office manager Martin Shroyer. He didn't know how much of the town was hit by outages.

    Kotzebue City Clerk Linda Greene said "every business and organization in town is closed" because of the storm.

    "You can't even see across the street," she said.

    Nome experienced intermittent power outages from about 11 p.m. Wednesday night through 5 a.m. Thursday as a result of the storm, said the Nome Joint Utility Systems general manager John Handeland.

    "We didn't lose the whole town," he said. "I don't think people who were out (of power) were out more than an hour, hour and a half."

    He estimated that there could have been about 150 to 200 homes without power.

    Meteorological technician Robert Murders in Nome said that while the area is only under a winter storm warning through 6 p.m., Nome is also under a coastal flood warning Friday.

    "We've got another one coming," he said.
